Cruise Critic named Avalon’s staterooms the best in the business, and yes, we’re blushing a bit. But it’s only because we’ve taken such pride in bringing you river cruising’s only Open-Air BalconySM stateroom design, featuring beds with a view. Rest easy (literally) as you enjoy bigger views, more space and 24/7 access to open-air cruising. With Avalon, the award-winning views are as wide open as the possibilities.
Cruise Passenger awarded Avalon the 2019 and 2020 Readers Choice Best Luxury River Cruise Line. We pride ourselves on ensuring the finest details- from dining through to décor - as well as our renowned relaxed luxury ambiance - and we're so thrilled cruisers are noticing.
YOUR CRUISE, YOUR WAY
Beyond our wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows is a world waiting to be explored – your way. Whether you want to enjoy a guided walking tour of one of Europe’s great cities, join a cooking class or paddle a canoe, our Avalon Choice℠ selections of Classic, Discovery and Active excursions offer a wide range of possibilities. When you prefer to explore on your own, we can help you with all the recommendations, information and gear you need with our new Adventure Centre and AvalonGO Mobile App. And when it’s time to refuel, your dining options on board are as wide as your views, with our new FlexDining® choices.
OUR VISION. YOUR VIEW.
We’ve mastered the art of blending luxury with comfort, and now – blurring the line between outside and in. Not only are our Panorama Suites℠ on our Suite Ships℠ 30% larger than the industry standard staterooms, our wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling windows open wider than any other, creating river cruising’s only Open-Air Balcony℠ and an open invitation to discover and dream. And speaking of dreaming in our Panorama Suites℠, we’ve turned our beds to face the window, giving you a bed with a view for the sweetest visions ever. Even if you’re a seasoned traveller, you’ve never seen Europe like this.
THE ART OF MAKING YOU FEEL AT HOME
We don’t just reserve the warmth and comfort for your room on an Avalon river cruise – we carry our welcoming spirit throughout the entire ship and spill it onto shore. From the Captain and Cruise Director to your stateroom attendant and wait staff, we deliver exquisite service that’s professional, approachable, and informative. Our approach is never stuffy but creates an atmosphere of relaxed luxury – like our casual and comfortable dress code that’s defined only by your individual preference. After all, your comfort is our top priority, both on and off the ship. Our friendly Local Guides are there to greet you at every port with engaging tales that bring you closer to your destination. Whether you’re on board or on shore, we take special care to ensure that you are perfectly taken care of every step of the way.
VIEW TO TABLE
From morning breakfast to elegant dinners, Avalon frees your taste buds from the ordinary. Using the freshest local ingredients, our talented chefs prepare mouthwatering recipes from the region through which you’re travelling and present them in a variety of inspiring settings. Our FlexDining® approach to onboard dining dispenses with strict seating times and limited restaurant options. Choose the onboard dining venue that suits your mood – from a breezy al fresco lunch at the Sky Grill to an elegant four-course dinner in the glass-walled dining room.
EXCLUSIVE MEETS INCLUSIVE
Regional wine and beer with lunch and dinner. Onboard enrichment activities. Onshore excursions with Local Guides. Special onboard entertainment. Even a customised mobile app loaded with navigation and suggestions to fuel your free time. An exclusive experience features all the right inclusions, yet still leaves room for personalisation – like our FlexDining® options to give you the freedom to choose when and where you dine on board. In addition to little luxuries like complimentary Wi-Fi and around-the-clock cappuccinos, Avalon gives you the greatest luxury of all – the freedom to customise your cruise with endless options and innovative tools.
SMALL DETAILS, BIG DIFFERENCE
When it comes to the little touches, we think big – like your choice of firmness in our exclusive Comfort Collection℠ beds and pillows, the plushest towels, L’Occitane® bath products atop marble countertops, premium spirits at the upscale bar, and rich Lavazza coffees in the Club Lounge. You deserve the best of everything when you’re on holiday, including what you need to maintain your healthy lifestyle. On our ships, you’ll enjoy a state-of-the-art fitness centre, free bicycles for use in select ports, and a bubbling whirlpool on the Sky Deck awaiting your return.
